We owe our thanks for this list of passengers who sailed on the Furnessia from Valentia Harbour to New York on Saturday June 2, 1883 firstly to the late Bro. Peter Lynch a member of the well known Lynch family of Valentia boat builders.  In the early 1980s, Brother Peter copied by hand the full list of passengers – almost all from the Iveragh Peninsula onto a foolscap book. 

Then years later, Daniel O’Sullivan whose great grandfather Michael O’Sullivan had been  both Registrar for Births/Deaths/Marriages, Valentia  & Clerk of the Court of the Petty Sessions on the Island took up the challenge.    Dublin born Daniel then went to great trouble to collate all the names, re-check baptisms & marriages where possible from Civil Registration (after 1864) and presented the list of passengers in Word Format as you see here.   He also added extra information on some families.
